Filming for the eighth series of 'Hustle' has begun.
The BBC One drama is to return to TV screens early next year and fans are in for a treat as the gang of grifters - led by master con-man Mickey 'Bricks' Stone (Adrian Lester) - continue to scam the high-flying and filthy rich.
Mickey is joined again by his trusty sidekicks, Albert Stroller (Robert Vaughn), Ash 'Three Socks' Morgan (Robert Glenister) and Emma and Sean Kennedy (Kelly Adams and Matt Di Angelo) as they face their biggest challenge yet.
It will be the last series with the current gang as they have decided to move on.
Adrian Lester, who is currently directing episode two of the final series, said: "'Hustle' has been a big part of my life for the last eight years.
"The time is right for me to move on. I'm looking forward to seeing what tricks the gang get up to in this last series and I'm very pleased to be given the opportunity to direct one of the episodes."
Karen Wilson, Executive Producer, added: "'Hustle' goes from strength to strength every year, cementing its position as one of BBC One's most successful dramas.
"The new series will be no exception, featuring some fantastic cons that will keep viewers guessing until the very end of each episode with daring double-bluffs and unexpected twists and turns."
